Thrifty

Vintage Leather Shorts Ebay, Cardigan Thrifted, Boots Topshop, Blouse Miss Selfridge

Some of you guys may know that I am really unsucessful at thrifting but I am trying to improve these skills so I popped into to few charity shops the other day with an idea of what I was looking for these included knitwear, blouses in rust or berry colours and sheepskin. I could not believe my luck I picked up three stunning pieces of knitwear I did find a really beautiful sheepskin jacket in perfect condition but it was just that little bit too big such a shame as it was only £20.

I am wearing one of the thrifted pieces I found in this post I love that it can be worn over the shoulders with the large button done up. Sorry for sad face not sure why xoxo

  19. What a gorg coat! I'm loving the leather shorts and over the knee socks combo too. I don't know what it is like where you are but I always charity shop by location, for example Liverpool is great for them as so much designer stuff gets thrown away whilst I go to Hebden Bridge (in the Lake District) for classic trenchs etc.

    Can't wait for your next post.
